Poisoned Apple Slot Review
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all? You all remember these words from the popular German fairy tale. Snow White was the most beautiful girl of her time, and we are about to see whether Booongo’s Poisoned Apple, themed after the story, is the fairest of the slots. Your task will be to help Snow White find her Prince Charming in the woods, and, if our sources are correct, the seven dwarfs prepared a bag full of precious gemstones as a reward for such an achievement. Watch out for the Wicked Witch, since we all know she is trying to become the fairest of them all, and is looking for her stepdaughter. Poisoned Apple is a five-reel slot with 20 fixed paylines, playable from £0.20 per spin. The game offers an interesting Free Spins feature, triggered once you reach necessary goals, and a Mirror Wild feature, which adds additional Wilds on the reels.
Fans of the famous German fairy tale will be pleased to know that almost the entire gang from the story is included in the 2017 release. The reels of the slot are located in the very forest Snow White used to live with her dwarf friends, and you will definitely enjoy spending time in this beautiful forest. Apart from Snow White, Prince Charming is also there, as well as the Wicked Queen, Snow White’s stepmother. The Hunter who didn’t have the heart to kill her is still carrying his big axe, and we cannot say with certainty which of the dwarfs appears on the reels, but we reckon it’s Happy, since he is always smiling. The Mirror is used as a Wild that substitutes for all symbols, and there are no Scatters whatsoever, since the Free Spins feature is triggered in an entirely different way than we are used to. Again, plenty of playing cards are included, even though there were plenty of other authentic characters that could have taken their place on the reels.
If you had the chance to play any of Booongo products in the past, then you will have no trouble at all understanding the rules of the game. Poisoned Apple features a 5×3 grid and offers 20 fixed paylines, at least that is the case in the base game. During the Free Spins feature gamers may get additional 5 paylines, but we will talk about that in the following section. The coin value is also pretty standard, going from £0.01 to £5, so set your bet somewhere between £0.20 and £100. No surprises here. Winning combinations are landed left to right, beginning from the far left reel, and three of a kind is the minimum for winning payouts.
The command list is exactly the same like in other Booongo titles, where you can use the Auto Game, with up to 1,000 automatic spins, Max Bet option for high rollers, Fast Forward to speed the game up a bit, the Bet option, Paytables, and, of course, the Spin button.
As we mentioned earlier, the Free Spins feature is not triggered by Scatters, but by achievements. Three Goals are available, and if you achieve at least one of them, you will be granted 7 free spins. It would be the best if you could achieve all three goals at the same time, because you will get bigger benefits during the feature. For example, the first goal can get you additional 1-5 freebies, the second goal will reward you with 1-5 extra paylines, while the third goal will activate one of three additional features during free spins.
The first additional feature you can get during free spins is the Mirror Wild. Once a Wild appears on reel 3, all other Wilds on reels 1 and 2 are mirrored on reels 4, and 5, on the same position, and vice versa. This feature is also active during the base game.
If you get the Sticky Wild feature, then every time Prince Charming appears on the reels, he will become a Sticky Wild, and will remain on his position throughout the feature. The Growing Wild feature will turn Snow White into Wild and whenever she appears on the reels, she will grow from her position all the way to the top row.
Also, there is a whole list of Epic Goals gamers can achieve during base game, and for every goal achieved, spinners will get some benefits, but you will have to discover for yourselves what kind of benefits can be gained by these Epic Goals.
When it comes to high-value symbols, the 2017 release is not as generous as other Booongo products. The Mirror Wild is the symbol that pays the most, 400 times the bet for five of a kind. Snow White will reward you with 200 times the bet for the maximum combination, while Prince Charming will get you 150 times the bet. The Free Spins feature is where you should look for big wins, especially if you trigger one of the Wild features. Poisoned Apple’s RTP is 96.8%.

– Generic playing cards
The good people of Booongo deserve a pat on the back for a job well done in the graphics department. Subtle animations in the background, colourful characters on the reels and a soothing soundtrack will help you enjoy your stay in the forest. The achievement of goals may seem a bit complicated in the beginning, but once you get the hang of it, you will trigger the Free Spins feature in no time at all. Help Snow White to find her true love, and her fellow dwarfs will make sure you have your own happily ever after.
